Breast cancer is cancer that forms in tissues of the breast, usually the ducts (tubes that carry milk to the nipple) and lobules (glands that make milk). It occurs in both men and women, although male breast cancer is rare. When breast cancer cells spread to other parts of the body, they are called metastases. There are different kinds of breast cancer. The kind of breast cancer depends on which cells in the breast turn into cancer. Breast cancer can begin in different parts of the breast, like the ducts or the lobes.
Immune system cells in the blood of breast cancer patients undergo alterations early in the disease course, according to a study.
Scientists have found that a fasting-mimicking diet could be more effective at treating some types of cancer when combined with vitamin C.
Scientists at the Department of Infection and Immunity of the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH) revealed a novel mechanism through which the immune system can control autoimmunity and cancer.
The anti-cancer medicine venetoclax could improve the current therapy for estrogen receptor-positive (ER+) breast cancer - the most common form of breast cancer in Australia - according to preclinical studies led by Walter and Eliza Hall Institute researchers.
The massive international effort to map the entire human genome, completed in 2003, opened a new field we now know as personalized medicine.
Macrophages are immune cells that patrol the body looking for potential threats like viruses, bacteria, and cancer cells, and engulf and destroy them.
Melbourne breast cancer researchers have discovered a new type of immune cell that helps to keep breast tissue healthy by regulating a vital process.
An international team of researchers has investigated how a cell's own "protein shredder" can be specifically programmed to fight cancer.
An international study, headed by the University of Bonn and Ulm University, has analyzed how the “protein shredder” of a cell can be particularly programmed to combat cancer.
At the Chalmers University of Technology, scientists have demonstrated that the Atox1 protein, which is highly concentrated in breast cancer cells, takes part in a process—the process through which cancer cells spread.
For the very first time, artificial intelligence (AI) has been used to discover a new type of antibiotic.
New breakthrough in breast cancer could enable the development of better approaches to prevent the spread of cancer cells to other organs in the body, thereby effectively bringing down mortality in patients suffering from breast cancer.
Researchers have conducted a study showing that combining an AIMS approach with machine learning could speed up the diagnosis of breast cancer.
